The Living Goddess Tradition
Tantra reveres and worships the cosmic feminine principle, the Shakti,
the Great Goddess, which is considered the dynamic energy, the power to create
of the Universe. It is Shakti who with her dance gives rise to all that exists.
With Shiva, the cosmic masculine principle, the static energy, the pure
consciousness, they form the cosmic couple, the Absolute that pervades
Her energy and qualities of grace, kindness, compassion, beauty, joy,
creativity, exist in every human being, both in women and in men. Her energy is
extremely precious for those on the spiritual path, because She is the force
that allows us to jump from the limits of individual consciousness to the bliss
of universal consciousness.
Worshiping Shakti means worshiping the creative power of the universe, the womb
from which flows Life, the source of a profound strength, and also means connect
to that same power within us.
According to the Living Goddess Tradition, still widespread in India,
women are considered the embodiment of Shakti in the earthly dimension, and are
recognized and worshiped as such. This is of fundamental importance for the
development of a society in which reign harmony, peace and prosperity. When
women lose their connection with their divine nature, they lose their power, and
this produces a progressive weakening of the generations to follow. The Mother
is, in fact, the first Guru (teacher), the Guru who has the role of caring,
bringing light, and guide the souls who come into this world.
Dasha Mahavidyas are the ten Goddesses of Wisdom who are invoked during
the Tantric puja (worship ritual).. The Goddesses are archetypes, symbolic
representations that embody Shakti and depict her ability to manifest
herself in an infinite variety of forms or stages of her evolution. They are
ten, but in their essence they are not separate, cause they are different
nuances of the only one reality. Their names are Kali, Tara, Tripura Sundari,
Bhuvanesvari, Chinnamasta, Bhairavi, Dhumavati, Bagalamukhi, Matangi , Kamala.
Worshipping Goddesses means to draw the subtle energies to which they are
connected, and although they apparently external figures. Worshipping is
actually a way to get in touch with those inner energies that are an essential
part of our own nature and make them active.
Awakening the sacred feminine and invite her radiant grace to enlighten
our lives and our path, is a fundamental point of the teachings and practices
offered by Master Shri Param Eswaran. Especially designed for this purpose are
ParaTan Bija Mantras (for both empowering and Healing), Yoni Worship and
Healing, and the practice of Meditative Love Making.
By participating to his workshops I was surprised and deeply touched by noticing
how many women approached him to reintegrate and explore the sacredness and the
magic of the divine feminine, to regaining this consciousness. Shri Param
Eswaran is an example of how the qualities of the divine feminine could be
alive in a body that is an incarnation of the divine masculine; as in a mirror,
it's safe and easy to recognize in the path of rediscovery because he knows how
to lead with extreme grace and respect. The responsibility of being a woman, the
responsibility of all human beings to honor women, the responsibility of men to
awaken their divine feminine inside, is the inalienable responsibility of giving
birth to joy, for themselves and for others.
According to The Living Goddes Tradition every women are seen in the image of
the Mother of Creation and is worthy of being worshiped.
